Ogden Museum’s nationally recognized Teen Internship Program is designed to provide teens a space to explore the arts and develop their creative voice and leadership skills. Each year, Ogden Museum accepts eight to ten teen interns who help with summer camps, docent-led tours and educational outreach.
Our Teen Interns experience a week-long intensive training to cover how to be a docent and a camp counselor. The experiences of being a docent and a camp counselor help to develop the teens’ leadership skills as well as allowing them to serve as role models for children. Additionally, the docent training teaches our teens’ Visual Thinking Strategies to help museum-goers use critical thinking skills when looking and forming opinions about art.
